SIGMA Announces fp L 61-Megapixel Mirrorless Camera & EVF-11 Electronic Viewfinder

SIGMA Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of the “SIGMA fp L,” a new member of the SIGMA fp series of the world’s smallest and lightest* full-frame digital single-lens mirrorless cameras, equipped with a full-frame Bayer sensor with approximately 61 effective megapixels. And thanks to this 61MP image sensor, the SIGMA fp L boasts outstanding resolving power, while remaining true to the SIGMA fp development concepts, namely the “world’s smallest and lightest pocketable full-frame camera,” “seamless STILL / CINE switch,” and “excellent customizability and scalability.”

With an excellent crop zoom that capitalizes on its ample megapixels, it offers users levels of image quality and creative range that are only possible with an ultra-high pixel camera. It also comes with an array of new features and accessories, which will make shooting more user friendly, including hybrid autofocus (AF) that combines contrast- and phase-detection, and USB charging while the camera is on. A new optional external electronic viewfinder EVF-11 will be available with the camera’s introduction.

1 | SIGMA fp development concepts and its three keys

Breaking down ideas of camera-centric hierarchies and categories, SIGMA makes a point of questioning what the genuine value of a camera is. What is essential to photographers? How can we make a camera that not merely meets the need, but makes your life more fulfilling and fun? By asking these questions, SIGMA has brought the SIGMA fp to life. Endlessly flexible and adaptable, a user-oriented camera for people who know what they want to shoot and what they want to create. Making a camera such as this a reality relies on three key concepts that represent the SIGMA fp series identity.

  • Pocketable Full-Frame
    Small in size, big on quality. Perfect for carrying anywhere.
    The SIGMA fp: world’s smallest and lightest* full-frame mirrorless camera you can take with you anytime, anywhere.
  • Scalable
    From vintage lenses to modern gadgets, up to professional movie setup. Creating your own style has never been so easy.
    Customize your fp just the way you want it, to suit what you want to do.
  • Seamless
    Capturing your best moment. Photo or video? The choice is yours.
    Change shooting modes with just a flip of a switch. Capture the moment whether it’s video or stills, beyond the boundaries of style or genre.

2 | The new fp L makes the fp a family of two

The fp, the series’ concept model, is now joined by the fp L that takes full advantage of high-resolution, giving the world’s smallest and lightest “pocketable full-frame” lineup a boost.

  • fp L – A big canvas for big moments
    Back-illuminated 35mm full size effective approx. 61 megapixels Bayer sensor
    Contrast detection autofocus + Phase detection autofocus
    Supports USB power supply
  • fp – A small camera for a big freedom
    Back-illuminated 35mm full size effective approx. 24.6 megapixels Bayer sensor
    Contrast autofocus
    The original “World’s smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless”
